Please forgive me…I’ve been a BAD blogger, I know. I’m sorry! Allow me to explain!
First, I am a wife and mother to 2 VERY active little boys! Then I bake and decorate cakes. During the school year, I work as the school’s Kitchen Manager, cooking lunch for around 150 every day. It’s an interesting job, very stressful and tiring. I also serve on our church’s Pastoral Council and Youth Ministry Council, design and layout the school’s auction fundraiser program, co-lead Vacation Bible School, and I could probably go on, but I won’t bore you with all I do! But you get the drift…I can’t say no and as a result, I’m a busy lady and blogging just got pushed into the VERY low-priority list (I’m sure there’s a lot of you out there that can relate)! I promise to try harder!
I have been updating all of the galleries with new pictures of the cakes that I’ve been doing. And if you want more up-to-the-minute updates (or as close as possible, anyway), you can follow me on Facebook…I promise, I update faster there!
There are big changes in store for Cake is Life in the future, including a newly redesigned website (there…I put it out there! Now my husband HAS to do it!)
I assure you, I have been making cakes, I still LOVE to make them and will continue to take orders for them! Email me at CakeIsLife@gmail.com to place your order or use the Contact Form here on the blog.
Thank you so much for your continued loyalty! It is such a pleasure working with great people such as yourselves! I’m honored to be part of your special events and I love it that you let me help you to create your perfect custom cake centerpieces!

Coach Purse Cake
I like being able to create cakes that look like things besides cake! This one is one after my own heart…who doesn’t wish they had a handbag made out of cake (shh boys, you just don’t understand!) Happy Birthday, Jennifer!

I love creating cakes for this little one! This is the 3rd one…year one and year two! Happy Birthday, Lucas!
Once again this cake was as delicious as it was beautiful!!!! Way to go Emily!! The cake was Fabulous!!!! ~Jennifer
Candy Land Birthday Cake
This was another fun cake to make! I loved Candy Land as a kid and my own kids enjoy playing it too, so it was pretty easy to come up with a design.
I just wanted to send a quick note to Thank You for such a great cake! Everyone loved it and it tasted amazing! ~Jennifer

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!
Many of you may not know that I have 2 very cute and fun boys, Benjamin (almost 6) and Samuel (almost 4). They constantly ask me if they can help and generally get told no, because the particular thing I am making is going to someone else! They are great assistants in the kitchen, so I enlisted their help to make my Dad (their Grandpa’s) birthday cupcakes!

Sweet 16 Birthday Cake
There have only been a few instances where people have asked me to recreate a cake that I have previously done before. Most times, I will change elements of the design to make it a little new and fresh. I think this is the first time I’ve kept with the original design so closely! I love this cake design…it’s just so fun! The mom wanted it tweaked a little to include the 16-year-old’s favorite colors: pink, orange and teal. I love how they look like sherbet! And I love the addition of the pearl luster too to make it shimmer! Happy Sweet 16, Elly!

Spiderman Birthday Cake
I made this cake for the same little one as this cake, which was the first cake I ever made for someone other than family! Happy 4th Birthday, Jude!
American Doll Cake
I made this cake for a little lady turning 5. It was modeled after the latest American Doll. The birthday girl was getting one for her big day. Happy 5th Birthday, Taylor!
